Fragonard is rolling over in his grave. Good!
Mom and I love going to "antiques" shops. The reason why I put "antiques" in quotes is that we have very few real antiques - objects 100 years old or older - here in Oregon. It's mostly vintage. Anyway, during the last week, Mom and I have explored several shops here in Oregon, and we saw all kinds of hilarious, tacky things. Here are some of my favorites.

Pig out!


  1. Ha!Ha! Hilarious! I especially enjoyed the musical interlude. Thanks for making me smile. Have a super day!

  2. You really did find some interesting stuff. I do like the pig cookie jar though.

    1. There's tackiness all around us, and it's pretty hilarious. :)

  5. I agree with you about the "antique" bit, and Fragonard deserves to be rolling over in his grave, and he doesn't need those figurines to do it. However, have you considered the items you have shown could more appropriately be called "vintage?" Still just as weird, but somehow even funnier.

    1. ROFL! And yes, it should be called vintage. I was just going by what the shops called themselves. :)

  6. Owls are making a big comeback!
